Welcome to the Enliven Ministries School of Prophetic Prayer!

  • Would you like to grow in intimacy with the Holy Spirit in the context of prayer?
  • Does the thought of being empowered in prophetic prayer stir you?
  • Do you believe God has called you to be a prophetic intercessor (or prayer warrior) and could benefit from some teaching and help?

My aim in developing this course is to provide a Biblical foundation for prophetic prayer, practical insights, and a whole lot of inspiration to help you move forward in prophetic prayer and intercession.

News! I have recently completed a class on "The Watchman Intercessor". If you can relate to being a discerner-intercessor this section is especially for you.
This course now comes with a complete transcript!

In this Prayer School, I share personal stories about my own experiences, joys, and challenges along the way.

When I began to experience the anointing of the Holy Spirit for prayer 20 years ago, I did not know how to navigate many of the encounters with God I was having. 

  • I saw miracles and breakthroughs in answer to prayer, but I also made mistakes, and had a lot of growth pain as a prophetic intercessor!

Since then I have been a prayer leader, have been a minister on a prophetic team, and by God's grace have developed in ministry as a prophetic writer and teacher. Now I'm passionate about helping others on the same journey I've been on.

Scroll through the topics in the course content below, to see what is currently on the prayer school.

In addition to the lessons, you can ask me questions on the discussion board and we will journey together.
